Has sudden infant death syndrome in survivors been linked to learning disabilities ?

SIDS: I would say this is an alte, or an apparent life threatening event vs. Surviving sids.

It could be hard to prove on a case by case basis the exact cause of a ld. ...Read more

Can head CT scans in an infant cause radiation and learning disabilities?

Can head CT scans in an infant cause radiation and learning disabilities?

Not exactly: A ct is by definition 'radiation', since it is a series of xrays computer reconstructed as sliced pictures of body tissues. It doesn't cause radiation but exposes the person to radiation. Modern ones may expose one to an amount similar to a transcontinental flight over the usa. Repeat exposure is a current topic of concern, but no specific learning disorder has been identified as connected to this. ...Read more

When will my baby learn to walk?

When will my baby learn to walk?

12 to 15 months: Children want to check out their world starting around 6 months, and by 9 months are able to crawl around. By 12 months, that just doesn't cut it, and they pull up on objects and cruise. We expect babies to walk between 12 and 15 months, though of course some will walk by 9 or 10 months, and some won't by 15 mo. A lot depends on the drive and gross development of the child. ...Read more

When will my baby learn to climb stairs?

When will my baby learn to climb stairs?

Around 1 year: Between 9 and 12 months, babies learn to crawl. By 12 months, most are starting to pull up and cruise on objects, and many are walking. Shortly thereafter they start to try to climb things. I always caution parents to start with the "mobile childproofing" around 7 to 9 months to avoid the "early walkers" and the accidents that happen when parents didn't know their children were that mobile. ...Read more
